Our newest team member, part of the Rightbilt family, is Bridgette Couto, her husband Paulo, and their two daughters, Kyler 5 and Bryleigh 15 months.
Living in South Africa, Bridgette came on board about 1 month ago and has propelled us into a tremendous growth period reaching clients from the Philippines to the Caribbean and back to South Africa but also throughout the US. When we first met Bridgette, we did not realize Paulo is an exceptionally gifted mechanical designer with superb electrical skills. His skills have him working on a unique waste plastic block building machine for us. He has installed solar systems and wind turbines. His background is allowing us to hasten our ability to deliver these green energy solutions throughout South Africa.
As we all know, “life is what happens when you are making other plans.” And Bridgette and her family had to leave their home in Fish Hoek to move 26 hours away to her father’s home in Pietermaritzburg. They are still on the remaining 11 hours of this bus ride. Bridgette’s spirit is second to none. They are making the trip like Hannibal's soldiers crossing the Alps. They plan to stay with her father for a short while until they can find their own place to call home.
We will have the second part of their Journey as soon as they get to their destination but for now enjoy the few photos the family has taken on their journey so far.
